Alignment Tools

Setting your BMW suspension geometry by dialing in your Camber, Caster, and Toe angles are important for maximizing tire life and achieving optimal suspension performance on the track. Often, alignment shops will turn down modified or lowered cars, especially BMWs. To ensure your car is set up for peak suspension performance, use our recommended alignment tools to get the job done right yourself. These tools make adjustable suspension an in-house job for precise suspension changes you can be confident in completing at home. All our recommendations are listed on this page to help dial in your BMW suspension alignment.
For accurate results, specify your model below.

Schwaben Rear Trailing Arm Bushing Tool - E36 E46 Z4 E83

This tool makes it easy to press old rear trailing arm bushings (RTAB) out and install the new bushings. This RTAB tool is like a clamp with a puller that draws the bushing through the trailing arm. With the tool positioned on the trailing, simply turn the stud to pull the bushing out. This tool will save you time, money, and hassle on your RTAB DIY job.

Note: this tool works with bushings that are not an interference fit in the trailing arm. Interference bushings need to be compressed and then pressed into the arm. They can be identified by splits in the outer case.

Steering Rack Alignment Tool - E36 & MZ3 This tool was developed by the TMS race crew for multiple fixes to overlooked problems in the steering rack and alignment, such as centering the steering rack, centering the steering wheel, and attaining repeatable alignments. Using this tool results in significant time savings and repeatable alignment settings when doing street or track suspension setups.

During typical alignment work the adjustments are made from the tie rods without first centering the rack (having even lengths of the rack exposed). If the rack is off-center when the tie rods are adjusted your steering will not have the correct number of turns and unequal turning radius left to right. A centered steering rack also prevents handling issues such as uneven bump steer and inconsistent steering resistance. This makes for more work for the technician but ensures your steering is consistent.

With this tool, every alignment will have the rack in the same place every time, which can save time when doing a quick check of toe after a hard day at the track or on the street. If your steering rack is in the same place for every alignment then the steering wheel will also be in the same place, hence eliminating the need to reset the steering wheel. Every time a toe adjustment is done and the tie rod is moved without the alignment tool, it moves the steering rack, resulting in having to recheck all alignment numbers after each adjustment, resulting in having to set up the alignment equipment after every adjustment. If you have ever used strings to set up your car you know how much having to restring the car can slow you down. If you are like us at TMS, you want your E36/Z3 perfect every time and you want to achieve perfection as quickly as possible.
